by mail. attorney general eric holder has his sights set on the texas voter i.d. law. holder said over the weekend, the struggle must and will go on in the cause for our nation's quest for justice until every eligible american has the chance to enter -- exercise his or her right to vote. texans are fighting back. >> this is deeply depressing to see the chief law enforcement officer in the country use partisan politics and that's all it is, to drive a wedge between americans based on race and ethnicity. it's really sad because we have come a long way. obviously we've elected barack obama president of the united states. >> the senator suggests much of this push is about a lame duck administration trying to turn texas into a blue state. arthel: so is there danger if it's interpreted as republicans trying to restrict voting? >> there are certainly some people who think so. virginia, arkansas, tennessee and north dakota have enacted new voter i.d. laws this year and colin powell is among those saying that voting will make it more difficult and immediately turn off voters the g.o.p. needs.
will take it down another 0.15%. we are north of the 13th largest economy in the world in texas, so you have to remain competitive. if you want people to invest more, if you allow people to keep more of their money, we know as conservatives, they will either suspended or save it and invest, which is good for the county. we overhauled our worker compensation system. we have some of the highest rates in the nation as well as in the region. we revamped our system, moving from an antiquated system, moving to a new system that will essentially safe employers, people who create jobs, 15% to 20% on their premiums every year. people always say, stop talking about social problems. i think that is nonsense. you take every social issue known to man, whether it is high incarceration rates, drug and substance abuse issues -- i think they can all be traced to one key ingredient, and that is the breakdown of the family unit. this year in oklahoma we said we would do things to promote the family, going on a campaign to express why strong families are not as good for society, they are good for the economy, a
? >> conflict resolution. >> stephanie: case casey in texas. >> caller: i need to get you off of speaker. >> stephanie: okay, thank you. >> caller: what i wanted to speak to was the fact that the fourth amendment applies to when you have an expectation of privacy and since the beginning of the internet, they've said that you have no expectation of privacy and also when cell phones first started, they said they're radio waves and you have no expectation of privacy there either. >> stephanie: that's what i've often said. i think a lot of this technology has outpaced where we used to be on these issues. >> stephanie: by the way, senator john mccain talking about russia and putin. >> mr. snowden's being granted asylum in russia is a signal of incredibly bad relations between the united states and russia and mr. putin putting his thumb right in america's eye. >> stephanie: why don't we just putter our hand up by our eye? billy in texas, long time no talking point. hi, bill. >> caller: hello. >> stephanie: hi, billie. >> caller: i wanted to call this morning. i've been listening. i used to adm
-americans incarcerated at nearly six times the rate of whites. let's hear from richard in huntsville, texas, a democrat. caller: thank you for taking my call. all i can say it is about time. this is about time. it has been 40-50 years that this should have been done. it is said that the only thing we as americans learn from history is that we refuse to learn anything from history. if you want to look at a perfect example of this, look at the prohibition. 21st at the 18th amendment/ amendment. prohibition made millionaires out of thugs. now we are making millionaires out of thugs with the so-called war against drugs. it is about time. said forcaller whatever reason they made marijuana illegal -- if you look at the history, it is all about racism. i am white. let me get that clear. host: john, pensacola, florida. a republican. caller: hello, good morning. watcher of c-span for many years. i'm 70 years old. i have tried many times to get through. i have had no luck until today. comments, ie my would like to state that somebody doesn't do his math correct. in an article you read about 1971, it alsoin state
. senator ted cruz of texas, steve king of iowa, 2012 presidential candidate rick santorum and yes, donald trump. i guarantee he's not running for president. let's ignore that. it's early. the 2016 race is under way. much more on the republican side than the democratic side. we'll talk about that more in saechblthd first i want to bring in msnbc's kasey hunt at the family summit in ames, iowa. we can see the crowd has yet to fill up. very early out there, probably a time zone change. tell us who is going to be there today. we gave us a few names. what are we expecting to hear from them? >> steve, you hit on the major names coming here on the 2016 hopefuls or potential 2016 hopefuls, you donald trump, rick santorum who eked out a victory over mitt romney in 2012. but in some ways what's notable are the names that aren't yet coming out here. there was a long list of republicans who were invited but who are not actually speaking this year. rick perry, governor of texas, bobby jindal, governor of louisiana, senator marco rubio from florida. there are banner names who are likely to pop up on th
, and his wife. judgment day -- you knew better. next is dave joining us from crockett, texas, good morning. caller: hello? yes, i would like to make a comment. you know, before time was ever recorded over in the middle east, then people have been fighting each other for years, thousands of years. and for the united states to think that they're going to send aid and change their way of living is complete idiocy. this government -- we have got so much wrong with our own country. ok, thank you for the call. from inside "usa today," in anticipation of the upcoming 50th anniversary of the march on washington, which will take place on august 28, the mlk memorial repair will not be finished, although work on fixing the quote does not an exact quote from dr. king will continue after the august 20 anniversary, and we will have life coverage from the ceremonies the weekend prior. and president obama, who is scheduled to deliver remarks on wednesday morning, august 28, to commemorate dr. king's remarks 50 years ago. clinical story from -- a ,"litical story from "politico hillary clinton is fielding o
to the gentleman from texas, mr. culberson. >> thank you, mr. speaker. i appreciate very much the gentleman from georgia filing this important legislation and i feel my day is not complete. unless we get a chance to cut spending and cut obamacare. obamacare contains more than 20 tax increases and gives the irs unprecedented authority to collect personal health information from more than 300 million americans. obamacare requires all insurance companies to report to the irs the name, address, identification number and type of insurance policy purchased by every customer, along with the determination whether or not the insurance was, quote, government approved. i'm very proud to be a co-author of dr. price's legislation that will prohibit the irs from collecting our personal health care information. the irs has admitted this i've heard from so many stints who are members of patriotic organizations. they stepped up for the first time in their lives to get involved in organizations like the texas tea party, the king street patriots, and for standing up as patriots and trying to do the right things fo
they didn't know who he was. >>> the state lawmaker who filibustered the texas senate for 10 hours to block an antiabortion bill will be at the press club in washington, d.c. randy davis will talk about the political climate in texas and future political plans. see her comments life. warner: eastern on c-span. >>> live at 7:30 the new jersey democratic candidates debate. corey booker faces congressman rush holt and frank pallone and state assembly member, sheila oliver. that is 7:30 on c-span. all this week at 7:00 eastern on c-span2, on core, q&a. charles bold o.w.n. talks about his duties as an astronaut and current duties leading the world's largest space agency. >> i've been pushing for this in the senate that we would move cybersecurity legislation. it is big, it is complicated. that word cybersecurity means different things to different people but we need to get this done. as hard as it is for me to say the house has done something right, i'm teasing about that, they're fine, but they have actually passed some of this and i think that we ought to look at what they have done and certai
that was declassified was the one delivered to president bush while he was on vacation at his ranch in texas five weeks before 9/11 happened. the title of that specific presidential briefing, why it is so famous, why it made headlines not just then but for years, was -- actually i'll just let condoleezza rice explain it. here she is testifying as national security adviser in watch. >> i want to ask you some questions about the august 6, 2001 pdb. you acknowledged that richard clarke told you that al qaeda cells were in the united states. did you tell the president at any time prior to august 6 of the existence of al qaeda cells in the united states? >> first, let me just make certain -- >> if you could just answer that question because i only have a very limited time. >> i understand, commissioner, but it's important that i also address -- [ applause ] it's also important, commissioner, that i address the other issues that you have raised. so i will do it quickly but if you'll just give me a moment. >> my only question to you is whether you told the president. >> i don't remember the al qaeda cells as
average in texas. >> what you're bringing us here in new york, thank you very much. >> it's great. >>> it's back to business today for the u.s. state department. all but one of the 19 embassies and consulates closed last weekend have reopened. still closed is the embassy in yemen and lahore, pakistan, remains closed due to a threat. is this an essentially all clear? how are you interpreting it? >> well, to some extent u.s. officials feel with confidence that they can allow some of the embassies or all of the embassies that have closed as a result of that to reopen. that's the case here in cairo. there's no doubt that security will remain high in these fa till si sill teas. they had actually reduced their staff because of the current unrest here in egypt. so really they are opened for business, as we understand it. things are back to normal. they are still operating at the staffing levels that actually preceded that al quiaeda threat. some staff had already left. there's no doubt they are going to remain a vigilant watch on many of these embassies in wake of the al qaeda threat that emerge
, if all goes well, the great stennis -- senator wendy davis of texas will think about running for governor. [applause] if we want to see a woman in the white house, which we do, we also need to see and support women running in governorships. these are executive leader positions and in the united states, 24 states have not ever come in their history, elected a woman governor. they are not alone. we have to do this so this is another piece of the puzzle. once you see it, you get it. it is not an issue anymore. we've got to keep on pushing state-by-state and i truly believe that once we break the glass ceiling for the white house, it will open up so many doors for so many women across the country in governors and mayors races and city council and you name it. that is why it is so important. >> senator mccaskill, your mother was an elected official. is she why you ran? a simple way of putting it -- i certainly thank my mother to father gave me permission be bossy and opinionated. [laughter] my dad reassured me that even though no one really wanted to date me in college, it would get better. [l
. nelson cruz of the texas rangers. jhonny peralta of the detroit tigers, it will be very interesting to see if they get a bigger salary next year than they do this year. >> you know, in fact, the quiet, all-burning question about pete rose who played for philly for a while. he's obviously a cincinnati guy. but the old question, how do you balance out great performance against breaking the rules. where do the fans stand on that one, mark? >> well, listen, i think there are fans quite upset with alex rodriguez and this steroid era. but i go back to my previous point. i think baseball profited. home runs were up. runs per game were up. baseball somewhere in '98, books were written. the sport was rejuvenated. i think there was time where baseball fans looked at the record books and cherished those records. unfortunately, the steroid era obliterated that record book. i think more often than not a lot of people look at peds and say to themselves you know what? it's a sign of the times. there's too much money to be made. if i'm an athlete at that point in time, i might look for an advantage

and president obama. putin sent a telegram down to texas to former president george w. bush. they got along famously. and there is clearly no warm relationship between putin and this president. >> there aren't nearly enough telegrams sent these days, are there? i think the decision that the president made and that the white house made and that the administration and secretary kerry all supported was that we weren't at the point in our relationship with russia right now where we would make significant progress to warrant a meeting between the presidents but we look at the importance of looking at areas we agree and disagree which is why secretary kerry and the foreign minister and secretary hagel and his counterpart of meeting today. i can't promise you what will come out of it. it's more recognition that this relationship is important and we need to continue to work through it even at challenging times. >> i want to ask you about embassy security overnight a lot of people all but emergency people were cleared out of the u.s. consulate in pakistan and moved to islamabad which is hardly a saf

, texas? aldean is houston's poor cousin. scrubby country, about as poor as union city, latino, african-american, spattering of white folks, and with half as much money union city spends on its kids, they are doing well, narrowing the achievement gap, and what are they doing? very much the same kinds of things union city is, and what is that? start with preschool, work up the curriculum. if there's a lot of kids from other countries, you better have a good bilingual program, a rich bilingual program that pays attention to language fluency and how they do in academic subjects. today it's bilingual, tomorrow english only, that happens in so many districts, especially in california. there's esl classes, day one. here kids transition slowly. this school district knows what educators know. that is it's really important to get a grounding in your home language before learning the second language. really important to hold on to that home language because being bilingual in the society is a huge advantage. a lot of the kids in union city come from homes where there are not a lot of books around
